LAST Conference Canberra is a cross-functional conference of people involved in the creation of (mainly software) products and services.
The key thing to know about LAST Conference is that it’s diverse. Speakers present and run sessions on product management, software development, user-centred design, cultivating culture, systems thinking, as well as Lean and Agile practices and ideas. We have case studies, presentations of new and old ideas, workshops and games.
The focus of the event is on how can we do our jobs better. We can draw from almost anywhere to fulfil this agenda.
Interpret the brief widely. Pitch us your ideas.
Notes - Be as detailed as possible, as this will help you to refine your idea in your own mind, help the content curation team select your session, and allow people who are coming to LAST to decide that they want to come and participate in your session/s. Don't forget, you can edit your session and adjust the idea in the coming weeks, so don't think that you've only got one chance.
Travel and Accomodation - As we are focused on the local community, we don’t expect people to travel from interstate or overseas to participate, although you are welcome if you choose to come.
As LAST is an event with low registration prices, we need to keep overheads low. Therefore, we generally do not reimburse travel and accomodation, or pay a fee to session leaders/speakers.
